Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nouse4anick Worst Quality Control I have ever seen!
I got this originally thinking it would take me and a friend 2 hours to set up, it turned into about 4 to 5 hours.
- about 10 or more poles had holes that did NOT line up
- roughly 10 poles had one hole instead of 2 holes
- only half the hardware was present, we ended up being able to put the entire canopy up with what was given (its only there to keep everything together until you get the tarp on and under tension)
If you are not very mechanically inclined (ie you have no metal working experience), avoid this product and find something else, otherwise make sure you have a drill handy and either some extra bolts or self tapping screws.

Canopy is well built and very strong. Easy to assemble.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DickF short some bolts
Apparently parts of the instructions and the hardware packet are for the 12' canopy. I needed to buy 8 2.5" carriage bolts and nuts to set it up.
The horizontal bars aren't bolted together. They depend on the tarp to hold them together. In a stiff wind, they could come apart. I suggest self tapping screws to strengthen them.
A rubber hammer and a drift are useful to get the swaged joints seated and aligned. I highly recommend anchors much stronger than the 8 flimsy pins they include to hold it down. They're pretty useless.
Otherwise, it's quite easy for 1 person to set up. I could have done it alone in under 3 hours if I hadn't had to go buy bolts. I knocked it down 2 stars simply because of the lack of hardware to do it right.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mary Excellent Shade Coverage!
This product will definitely provide the shade needed for our daycare's playground area. Assembly would have been a few hours except one vital part was missing and I needed to order from Shelter Logic. Also, some bolts were missing, too. Once it was up, the product is great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zippy1970 Good for the money, seems durable
Took 2 old worn out guys less than 2 hours to put up. Easy to follow instructions. Need to setup an appointment if getting home delivery. I bought 20 - lag bolts 1/4 x 2.5 inches and nuts to put in the remaining holes as it does not include enough for every hole just the main ones. You will need to drill 12 - 1/4 " holes to screw together the poles along the horizontal as there are no screws in these. I enjoy it. I have the legs raised on 2- 8x16 ( laid sideways) blocks and then it all tied together with rebar tie down wire to weigh each leg and raise it all 16". I am happy. We will see how it holds up.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cybercom Have not been able to set it up, yet.
I inventoried the box and found 11 parts missing. You are in the process of ordering those parts. I was unable to use this canopy for our Memorial Day family activities.
Please ask me for my review after I have received all the pieces and installed them. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LCraig Very good quality carport. Good value
I like the carport. There were some parts missing that proved to be frustrating but in general I am very pleased. The quality of the actual assembly is quite good to excellent

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Bought this five years ago!
This canopy has worked great for me. I have had to replace the top once. The area I have it in gets some pretty high winds. I use it to cover a bulk salt bin and it has been great! Would definitely recommend.
